I'm 70+ and live in the Midwest. We have 3 living children, 2 DILs, 2 DGSs, ages 17 and 14, and a grown DGD who is mommy to our great-grandchildren, 2 girls and a boy!! Being overweight has been a problem for me since my last pregnancy well over 40 years ago! I've probably lost 750 pounds in my life, only to put it all back on time and time again. I also have had both hips replaced due to osteoarthritis and hauling excess weight around is not good for them. So, in the interest of preserving my joints, enjoying life, and above all, being healthier, I'm working on improving my general health and becoming more active--would love to keep up with the younger generation for a very long time! SparkPeople is giving me that chance!

Member Since: 4/13/2007

Fitness Minutes: 69,780

My Goals:
My overall goals are simple. I want to lead a healthier lifestyle that helps me to have the energy and enthusiasm to be active and happy. In order to do this, I will take off the excess pounds by eating healthier and working on my fitness.


My Program:
My program is also simple:
1. I will be focusing on monitoring my calorie intake and utilize WW as much as possible. This will include getting an appropriate balance of protein, carbs and fats.
2. I will participate in Silver Sneakers (when they become available again) and water exercise programs at the Y 3-5 times each week. Fitness may be my friend, but I'm still trying to get make it my best friend--difficult since I'm not really much of a fan. LOL Until the Y reopens, I will utilize SP and YouTube videos at home.
3. I will weigh in weekly and actively participate in the 2021 5% Winter Challenge, as well as my team activities.



Personal Information:


Other Information:
I love to read and work on genealogy, and spend as much family time as possible with our grandsons and greats. Notice I do not include exercise in my "loves," but I do make myself work on fitness, with that as the over-riding goal: functional fitness.
